Raven Symone On Her Return To Disney Channel With 'Raven's Home': 'It Means Everything To Me'

Raven Symone will finally be back on our TV screens on Friday night in Raven’s Home — and yes, it’s been a long time coming.

“It means everything to me, being able to come back with a different view on life,” the actress told EW about returning to Disney Channel as a grown up Raven Baxter.

She adds, “I can show people who I’ve become as a woman. I really don’t have to worry about anything when I play her. She’s just fun.”

Raven also talked about the physical comedy and working with Anneliese van der Pol, who plays Chelsea.

“We are helping each other co-parent, so you can only imagine what that’s like with Raven and Chelsea being authoritative,” Raven shared about the dynamic in the show. “The show is based on how you can have a family in an untraditional sense.”

“Just because you don’t have a mother and a father in the home doesn’t mean you can’t have a healthy, happy family. It’s something comprehensive and true to life and many people go through on an everyday basis.”

She’s really excited for the physical comedy, too.

“It’s fun to be able to do pratfalls and get more into what we were known for on That’s So Raven,” she adds. “This is the first time the kids have been able to do physical comedy so I’m always right there with them coaching them through it as best I can. That’s how I was taught. So we’re all learning together. But I think we’re going to punch it up a little bit more as the season continues.”

Raven’s Home will premiere right after Descendants 2 on Friday, July 21st on Disney Channel.
